great hotel

Would recommend Wed, Mar 20, 2013
we really enjoyed our stay,every staff member was lovely,the leisure centre and pool are fanastic, we had 2 course early bird dinner for £10, that was great. we had breakfast in town as we went out early. it is located in a mostly housing area but the bus stop is just outside and bus is £3.50 for day pass, supermarket is also nearby,taxi costs about £13 to and from airport. this is a really great hotel, the room was very warm and comfortable

Nightlife hint

not about the hotel, everything was great there, just edinburugh itself is very very cold in march, we didnt bring enough warm and waterproof clothes

My Stay At The Capital Hotel _Keith

Would recommend Tue, Mar 5, 2013
I have stayed at this particular hotel on a number of occasions, and am never disappointed with the experience. The room is comfortable, clean and serviced daily, which is a pleasure to find when I have been out all day and wish to relax. I did not take advantage of any meals, so can't comment regarding this aspect of the hotel. The reception area is manned by friendly and welcoming staff, which deserves particular mention. First impressions count and it's hard to find fault with either the interior or the fast and efficient staff.

Good 3 star for minibreak

Would recommend Thu, Sep 27, 2012
I was in Edinburgh for a minibreak (shopping and sightseeing). I was a little underwhelmed by the lobby on arrival and, on the way to the room, felt the corridors were a little shabby (scuffy wallpaper, chipped skirting boards, grubby carpets). However, the room itself was clean and well presented with the standard tea/coffee, tv, trouser press. The room was decorated in tones of brown and beige with a small table and chairs by the window. The bed was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was clean but the shower a little tricky to get right. There was a swimming pool, sauna & steam room with gym facilities as part of the fitness centre which was very good - well maintained with good changing facilities. The restaurant was fine - decent prices, ok food. There is free wifi but I thought it was a bit slow. The staff were all very pleasant, helpful and professional. All in all a good 3 star with a few minor points that could be improved. One major downside was a lot of noise late Monday night to early Tuesday - queried it with the staff next day but no idea what it could have been. I travelled to Edinburgh by plane & got a taxi from the airport. There is an airlink bus from the city centre directly to the airport, £3.50 & about 20 mins. It would have fairly simple to get to the hotel by bus but would have involved at least one change. For the rest of my stay, I travelled by bus as there is a stop just around the corner & a daysaver cost £3.50 for unlimited travel - took about 15-20 mins to get to city centre. I visited Edinburgh Castle, the National Museum, the Art Gallery, took a bus tour, etc. A very picturesque city with many beautiful buildings. There is some disruption at the moment as they are putting a tram system in and also some building work in the very outer areas of the castle. The hotel itself is on Corstophine Hill which has plenty of scope for walks & good views, if your room is to the rear. It is very near to Edinburgh Zoo. The trip compares well with other visits to cities in the UK.

Attractions

On the last day, I had to check out a lot earlier than my flight time so I left my bag at Waverley train station rather than carry it around all day.

Edinburgh option

Would recommend Sat, Aug 18, 2012
Great location not too far from airport and away from hectic city center traffic yet close enough to hop over to center. Very attentive staff. Nice hilly park right across road and many walking/ running options in adjacent residential neighborhood. Free spacious parking. Windows open for great fresh air.

Romantic Couple Week-end getaway

Would recommend Tue, Feb 21, 2012
It was a fantastic week-end! The hotel is 15 min from the airport by taxi and 20 min to the city centre by bus, staff very friendly, helpful and professional. Room very clean and comfortable, Fitness centre with swimming pool, sauna and steam room is just what we need it after a long cold day, so relaxing! Definitely i would recommend this hotel! Thank you for the lovely stay.

Just fine

Would recommend Thu, Nov 24, 2011
although the hotel is configured a little funny and the room was hard to find, the hotel was quiet and relatively easily accessible. the food was pretty good for the price. they don't offer a complimentary service to the airport, but they did schedule a taxi for me at 4am. beds are pretty uncomfortable. shower is so-so.

Friendly and quiet

Would recommend Fri, Oct 21, 2011
Far enough out of the city to be quiet but only an easy 15 minutes bus ride from the city. Staff all friendly and helpful. Food in the evening good quality, tasty and good value. Breakfast was pretty good although the choices were a little limited. Would definately stay again.

Money saver

get a daysaver bus ticket for £3.20 and you can travel anywhere all day. Buses are supper clean and run every couple of minutes.

Not the greatest, but not not the worst by any means

Would recommend Sat, Oct 15, 2011
While the location of the hotel is a little out of the way, the overall aesthetic of the hotel itself was lovely. Although neither the bed nor the pillows weren't comfortable in the slightest, the room service was quick, the food was averagely good and all of my requests were taken care of - like a 4am wake up call and taxi ride to the airport. I would stay here again as a spot of transfer to get me closer to the airport, but not as a place to stay for a week on vacation.

why stay here?

Would not recommend Mon, Oct 10, 2011
The lobby looks good. The hotel and rooms have been recently renovated according to the staff. However, the beds are soggy, rooms are dimly lit. Cups and spoons for tea were not clean. Why would you stay here? My husband picked the hotel.
